Start Here – Meet Jenni


Hello, it’s nice to meet you! I’m Jenni DeWitt, the author of I’ve struggled with anxiety all my life, but especially since I became a mother.

On the day my 2-year-old son was suddenly diagnosed with leukemia, I found that God had put me on a crash course in life. Now I’m learning that prayer is the secret to living free of the fear I carried around for all those years.  

If you are a Christian woman who’d like to live free of fear and anxiety through the power of prayer, then you have come to the right place. I’ve created this space just for us as we seek a deeper relationship with Jesus.

At Genuflected, you are not going to find a scholar. What you will find is a friend — someone who will walk beside you.

Two are better than one: They get a good wage for their toil. If the one falls, the other will help the fallen one. But woe to the solitary person! If that one should fall, there is no other to help. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10).

  1. Hi Jenni, it’s nice to meet you. I found your link through Lysa’s post today. God must have brought me to your website because I’m currently battling fear/anxiety~ which has happened to me on and off since I was little. It especially happens when God is calling me to leave my comfort zone. Thanks for being vulnerable about the fear you have had. May the Lord bless you to be FEARLESS. May we only fear the Lord, and obedience to Him.

  2. Hi Jenni,
    I remember my mom telling me about your little boy awhile ago and hadn’t realized it had passed so quickly- but a lifetime for you. I saw somewhere you had written a book so I bought it. I just finished it and am so very impressed with your resiliency and accomplishments. You have taken a truly devastating event and made it positive as well as to help others. I truly believe everything happens for a reason and I think you were meant to help others. I am so sorry for all the adversity you and your family has endured, but I am glad Cooper is doing so well. My thoughts are with you all!

  3. Kristi, I’m so glad you enjoyed the book! God has a way of redeeming every situation. I’m grateful He has used our situation to help others.

  4. Hello Amber! Yes, the more we step out in faith and trust the more resistance there is. I have experienced that in my own life as well. It’s so important that we keep cheering each other on. I’m grateful to connect with you here and share in that encouragement together! Keep in touch!

  5. My husband is Catholic & I’ve always been Evangelical Christian. But I want us to go to church together & he’s not going to go with me so I’m willing to switch churches. This is a big step for me as the worship is so different (along with some of the theology). How did you make the switch or were you always Catholic?


  6. That is a big step! I grew up Lutheran, and just like you, when we got married we wanted to go to the same church. Since our two faiths were so similar, it was hard for us to make a decision. We attended both churches while we tried to decide. Then, one day in the Catholic church, I felt a tug from God and knew that’s where I was meant to be. I was pretty young, just 24 at the time, so I think that made the switch easier for me. I wasn’t quite as set in my ways as I am now! lol

    We had several months of classes that I took before I had to make my final decision whether to convert. During that time, I raked the priest over the coals, coming every week with a list of questions a mile long. In the end, many of the things that were turning me off about the Catholic church were actually my own misperceptions or misunderstandings about the true teaching of the church. There were some things, like the topic of Mary, that it has taken me a decade to come to terms with.

    It’s such a huge decision. The biggest advice I can give is just to pray about it. Email me if you have any more questions or want to talk more about it:


  7. I’m going through the 7 day prayer challenge with you. I’m benefiting from the time spent, but am interested in a better understanding of the opening prayer. What do you mean by the second sentence of the prayer? Who is the “they” that will be created?
